Center for Earth Jurisprudence

Barry University
Orlando, FL

The mission of the Center for Earth Jurisprudence is to advance law, policy, and governance systems aimed at legally protecting the sustainability of life and health on Earth.

Earth jurisprudence is an emerging field of law that seeks to develop a philosophy and practice of law that gives greater consideration to nature, by recognizing the interconnectedness of Earth’s natural systems, the inherent rights and value of nature, and the dependence of humanity and all living beings on a healthy Earth.

The Center for Earth Jurisprudence advocates for the adoption of earth jurisprudence principles in our legal system.
